Remove ALL styling/formatting from hyperlinks

I'm creating a navigation menu with words with different colors (

href
links). I would like the color NOT to change on any state (hover, visited etc).

I know how to set the the colors for the different states, but I would like to know the code to just leave the text color (and any other styling/formatting) as it is.

Any Suggestions?

Answer

You can simply define a style for links, which would override a:hover, a:visited etc.:

a {
  color: blue;
  text-decoration: none; /* no underline */
}

You can also use the inherit value if you want to use attributes from parent styles instead:

body {
  color: blue;
}
a {
  color: inherit; /* blue colors for links too */
  text-decoration: inherit; /* no underline */
}
